The Longest Journey

Wake Up

Chapter 2

Way to a Flashback

Kitty successfully landed in Casablanca, the houses and traditional clothes, made the city as well traditional, and also made our heroine blind as both were bright, living in Japan made her eyes used to night and neon and the heat burned her body.

- How can Liv live here? - thought Kitty, her throat was dry, she was in desperate need of cool water.

Kitty only knew her way vaguely in here, she thought and heard that Jerico lives here as well, which excited her. She was ready to give him a piece of her mind, basically about everything he wrote.

Liv was running toward her, then said while catching her breath.

- Oh sweetie! I figured you don't know your way here, so I thought I pick you up!

Kitty was thankful for that, it made her remember the time when she began to know Olivia...

At the time she was a normal student, with average grades and an average teenage mind, only interested in the newest singers and the latest fashion, however she was a great story-teller and was vice-president in the school newspaper, which made her parents proud. She was 14 at the time...

Then in one night, she was searching for interesting websites to write about for the newspaper, when she found a secret website full of - what the EYE referred as a criminal's shelter website - hackers and reporters who were searching for juicy stories. Ever wondered were the shady people come from in the talk shows? They were here...

It was full of hard codes and secret passwords, but since her mother and father both worked in WATI, Kitty of course had the technology to break into that site. It also made it clear to the visitors after one got in, that the console address is untraceable, so no worries... Also that the hacking into the website is the test...

Kitty, did not feature the site in the article, but always checked back and soon she began to be on friendly terms with Liv and crew and the people on the website become a second family.

Kitty and Liv after 6 month become real friends and soon they began to trade each other goods secret or something stole from the WATI cooperation to some serious hacking.

She also soon learned the secret affairs and scandals of WATI, which would no human would think normal and would despise the cooperation from heart - which Kitty did and do - but did not surprised her as it would the public. Such as cloning, human experiment and a not-so clear plan to take over the world.

At the time something changed in Kitty. She wasn't as cheerful as she used to be and drop out from the school newspaper as well. She wasn't interested anymore on such cheap and easily forgettable stuff as fashion or a new pop bands, she wanted to write about stuff that actually had a meaning and soon discovered her role-model, Jerico.

For start she wrote reviews about Liv's products, then she moved onto writing some articles about what she thought about society to a small website, soon she was at the same level as Jerico, but only on the net, but that only happened recently...

She was now eighteen, she changed a lot from the 14 year old girl, with a bright face and smile and long orange pig-tails to a pale faced serious spiked head teenager, she was also a lot calmer now, but far from shy, but her temper remained the same, meaning, she was easily pissed off...

She had boyfriends, but soon she was not interested in them, so she dismissed them after month. They all missed something, she didn't knew what, but that made them unbearably annoying... Liv told her many times that she was just too picky about them, but it didn't change her mind about them.

- Your probably tired from the trip here, so just rest - Liv snapped Kitty out from her trance and made her aware of reality. Liv pointed to the right direction. - That part is where I live and obviously where you'll live. It is rather small, so I don't think you will have any trouble finding you room.

The mobile's rather annoying ring-tone could be heard, which was nearly immediately was picked up by Liv.

- Sorry sweetie, but it's really important, I have to go to now, here are the copy of the keys, I will show you around tomorrow - Liv gave Kitty a spare set of keys and rushed out from the door.

Kitty was a bit tired from the journey and was ready to put up her feet and watch TV, when suddenly the screen become static again and it seemed to her that Zoe was ready to tell another message, or any information concering her...

- After the day I was arrested and found a dead woman in Reza's house, I went back and hacked into the EYE system lock, to look around... Reza's WATIlla's brain was fried, but I used Wonker's so the problem was solved... After I fried the EYE spider, and put in the new parts, she led me to Reza's safe and took out the notes he left for me... I took them to Liv to decode them and slowly my journey began. As yours too...

The screen cleared again and Kitty was now sure that these messages were meant to her alone... She has to put all pieces together and probably save the world from evil, she sighted... "Just like an anime or a game..." thought sarcastically Kitty... "My journey is sooooo predictable... I will fall in love with the first guy that is trying to help me and then we shall save the word together or probably one of us dies in the process if not both"

Kitty was now too tired to do, basically anything so she left to rest, leaving her stomach to grumble occasionally...

Meanwhile in Stark in Friar's Keep...

Brynn looked out hopelessly at the sunshine and hoping to die... He wanted to die for Raven, for the rebels, for everything he believed, for freedom. He felt that by not dying in the battle, he betrayed those people and himself... He could not allow himself to live anymore... The thought still killed him piece by piece when he thought about it...

Raven died... And Na'ane betrayed them... Two people he could trust his life with, both betrayed him... He could not trust anyone in this world and promised not to do so.

However he did not want to die now as worthless as a criminal, for something as great and glorious as to protect his land...

- Brynn, I know your depressed, but what you do now is just self pity!!! - shouted Chuwan to the sobbing Brynn. - Your 21! Be a man!

- How could I be a man, when I was left rotting in this cell, because of the Azadi for 2 years and NOW they decide that they will execute us in public! - shouted back Brynn, anger was Brynn's friend. It washed away all the tears he left in since childhood... "I will take revenge for you Raven! In form of human or Ghost, I don't care! But the Azadi will whisper the name Brynn with fear one day!!!" Brynn made this promise to every Azadi...

Kian wasn't in a happy mood either... His love, - though it seemed a bit rushed to call her his love, but she certainly captured his mind that way.- dyed and he could not protect her, he tried to reason, he would had fought with the soldiers, but in the eyes of the Scorpion, there was grief and relief which stopped him... It seemed she wanted to dye, but why would she want to?

He wanted to know...

The Soldiers mocked him, for being an Apostole, but be blinded by a witch's charm, Kian did not like these mockers, but he was a prisoner himself and so could not do anything!

He and the other rebels were to be publicly executed and show an example to the world of Stark, that the Azadi has no enemy or if anyone would like to be, they could be easily washed away...

Grief and pain, like an angel of death, hung over the whole of Friar's Keep... In a week's time, blood will wash the ground of the holy temple of the Goddess and screams will be heard everywhere from the city, as the sky, people's heart grew slowly dark...
